“Kathleen, Jim and the whole Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Elite Properties firm bring a consumer-centric approach that strongly aligns with the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand,” said Christy Budnick, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “The brokerage believes that as Forever Agents they’re doing more than marketing homes, they are also marketing overall lifestyles to many people in the region, and particularly Charlotte, the Carolinas represent where forever begins.”
